Does anyone know if this road in London owes its name to the Anglo-Boer War, or to the White City exhibition complex?
Wikipedia says: - "Street names in the area suggest links to South Africa but these were inspired by places and personalities from the Boer War or by their proximity to the former position of the South Africa Pavilion in the White City exhibition area."
Neighbouring roads include Australia Road, India Way, Canada Way, and Commonwealth Avenue (formerly Empire Avenue?), which could indicate the name being inspired by the Great White City -
- but there's also a Bloemfontein Road, which is perhaps more indicative of the ABW.
Thank you, David. The nearest Local Studies seems to be at Hammersmith - Shepherds Bush library doesn't have that - so, as I'm going to be in the Fulham area in April, I'll try to get to Hammersmith too, and make an enquiry there.
